Are you hearing any noises from the pass door when you activate the lock switch? If not, the power door lock solenoid has failed, and prob needs to be replaced. Pull the door panel & check to see if it is getting power to the solenoid in lock & unlock. If it has power, the solenoid is def bad.

You have a high compression ratio engine and it's recommended to use 91 octane. You can get away with the 89 octane, but the higher the better for the engine. Less chances of detonation (Engine Knock), Take note that it's best to keep faith full on servicing the Engine for Oil and filter changes. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

Sounds to me like the fuel pump is worn out. They DO wear out. And even though they seem to be working, the brushes in the electric fuel pump may not be contacting all the commutator, thus making the pump weak. It may start the motor but can't maintain normal running pressure (27-35psi). Have you run the car out of gas shortly before this problem surfaced? If you have then it's your fuel pump. It was damaged when the tank ran dry. Even though the pump may seem to be working, it's still badly damaged and needs to be replaced.
Just as Matmenzies has stated, get a fuel pressure gauge and test the pressure. I'd start with a complete check of all your vacuum lines. Check for cracks on the vacuum hose that connects to fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Also, if you can, get a hand operated vacuum pump to check the regulator. If you can place a vacuum on the regulator and it holds, I'd say move on the fuel pump and check it.
BTW, if the fuel filter has been changed, you may want to check to see if it was installed backwards! Some fuel filters are valved and will cause symptoms like this. However, this is an immediately noticeable mistake and you haven't provided enough info for me to say more. I'd pull it and check that it has any flow at all. You could have sucked in a big dirt ball and blown it right into the new filter, effectively stopping fuel flow. Then I'd blow out the fuel lines, just to be sure.
Start with these 2 things and post what you find. We'll go from there.
